The Perfect Sunday Morning Brunch Recipe

Baked Apple Pancake ala ~DKBB~
(from a recipe by Jill St. John in a 1980s or 1990s Parade Magazine)

1 cup flour 
1/3 cup + ½ tsp. sugar
1 cup beer, room temperature
2 egg yolks
4 egg whites
¼ cup light brown sugar
1½ tsp. cinnamon
2 green apples, peeled and sliced
3 Tbsp. sweet butter
1 Tbsp. oil
½ small lemon
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Sift together flour, 1½ tsp. of the sugar, and salt.
  • Add beer and stir until smooth.
  • Beat in 1 egg yolk, then the other.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg whites and 1 Tbsp. of the sugar; beat until peaks form.
  • Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the batter.
  • Mix together the remaining sugars and cinnamon; reserve 2 Tbsp. of the mixture.
  • Squeeze the ½ lemon over apple slices and toss well, then toss that with the sugar/cinnamon mixture until the slices are thoroughly coated. 
  • Heat butter and oil in iron skillet.
  • Pour ½ of the batter into the skillet, add in the coated apples (lay them in carefully), then pour the rest of the batter over the apple layer.
  • Sprinkle the reserved sugar/cinnamon mixture over the top.
